3D Mammography

 

We offer the most advanced breast imaging technology available today, including 3D mammography. Research has shown that 3D mammography is better than film-based, analog x-rays for many patients.

  • Better at detecting breast cancer in pre-menopausal women and in women with dense breasts
  • Detects more cancers than standard mammograms
  • Produces clearer images and allows the radiologist who is reading the image to zoom in, magnify and optimize different parts of the breast tissue
  • May reduce the occurrence of unnecessary biopsies
  • Digital images are stored on a computer, so they are also easy to send to other providers involved with your care

Every screening mammogram performed at the Breast Health Center at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers, Addison Gilbert Hospital and Beverly Hospital is read by a board-certified radiologist. In addition, each one is double-checked using the ImageChecker® Computer Aided Detection System, which serves as an added level of accuracy.

Northeast Health System mammography facilities possess a valid license and certificate of inspection issued by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
